Triss Merigold might be dubbed ‘Merigold the Fearless’ in The Witcher, although cosplayer Irene Meier has decided to show her gentler side with an unbelievable costume design. 

The popularity of The Witcher spans over a number of different communities, including those who read Andrzej Sapkowski’s books, players of the hit video game and the Netflix exclusive TV series.

Therefore, it’s no surprise to see that characters from the franchise are also starting to appear in the world of cosplay, either, where fans often dress up as different figures and try to recreate them in the most creative ways possible.

Here’s how Triss Merigold looked in The Witcher 3 video game.

Instagram model Irine Meier, who has a staggering 751,000 followers on the platform at the time of writing, has had a go of recreating the look of Triss Merigold and the results are impeccable.

For those who don’t know already, Merigold is one of the best healers in The Witcher, carrying with her a number of potions. However, what’s funny about the character is that she’s actually allergic to the potions she carries, meaning healing others is very much her thing.

The cosplayer has shared many different outfits to her profile, but there’s no doubt that her take on the legendary Temerian sorceress of the 13th century is one of the best, and an instant hit with fans – attracting over 55,000 likes.

As the image above shows, Meier has done incredibly well to not only replicate the outfit, with a leaf green coat and gold trimming perfectly bringing the costume together but also the attention to detail for the photograph itself.

The setting very much fits the design of Merigold’s costume and wouldn’t look out of place if you saw this in a scene from the TV show or video game, that’s for sure.

Going one further, after noticing a slight difference about Triss’ character in the show, she completed another photoshoot showing what the “old school” version of Merigold the Fearless looks like.


Meier also confirmed that this would be one of many photos to be included in her next Patreon drop. The first image, seen earlier, will be included in her cosplay calendar, which is available to buy now via her Instagram page.

Other designs that she’s completed in the past include Lara Croft, Ciri from The Witcher and more, but these ones might be up there with the very best.

In another post on Instagram, the cosplayer faithfully re-created the moment from the episode where Ty Lee asks a beachgoer to stand in front of the sun to create shade for her to rest in. 

This isn’t the first time the artist has dressed up as the Avatar heroine. In September, she collaborated with cosplayer ‘minakess’ who portrays Princess Azula. Daniella wore Ty Lee’s regular pink outfit while sitting next to the series’ villain.

Despite ending in 2008, the Last Airbender has seen a major revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its platform in April. The Nickelodeon animation celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2020.
